Two MAD shorts to feature at Djerba Arab Film Festival
Two shorts from MAD Solutions' distribution slate — Ihsen Kammoun's ROAD TO EL KEF and Salma Murad's MATCHSTICK — will be featured in Tunisia's Djerba Arab Film Festival, which will be running from June 18th to the 24th in the island of Djerba, where they will be competing in the festival’s Official Competition. 
Directed and written by Salma Murad and starring Naif Al-Daferi and Nawwaf Al-Daferi, MATCHSTICK follows the story of Osama — a young man caught in a quarrel between his emotions and memory as he tries to find a thread leading to answers. 
He tries to awaken the part of himself that gives him reason, but his reasoning is brutal, maybe even abusive.
Meanwhile, ROAD TO EL KEF was directed by Ihsen Kammoun Road and features a starstudded Tunisian cast that includes Fares Landoulsi, Ahmed Hafiene, Malek Ben Saad, Sawsen Maalej, Alaa Edine Yacoubi. 
The film was shot in the Tunisian city of El Kef and delves into extremely intricate family issues, drawing attention to fragmented families whose members have fragile relationships, and how the children of these families can be easy targets for terrorist groups and organizations.
